Dust Control Measures by Arawak

A  BIG PART  of Arawak Cement’s corporate social responsibility programme is focused on protecting the environment and reducing the impact of its operations on neighbouring communities. Under the leadership of General Manager, Manuel Toro, Arawak has been engaging nearby communities  on the environment and has implemented several measures including washing the roadway and planting trees to act as barriers in the vicinity of its Bromefield Quarry.

The company planted 48 Ficus trees during the month of June, aligning very suitably with this year’s  World Environment Day theme – “Plant a Tree”.
